Thoughtless Bickering.

With heads turned away and a sour after-taste lingering, the night cleared into an ever darkening dawn.

Even irony cannot dictate the course of events that is yet to unfold.

Dry spells of melancholy afflict my heaving conscious. Time and time again I have to feign a response conflicting with the general contempt of my insides. A certainty looms overheard. I dread the void it might leave behind – if it hasn’t already. I am constantly negating. I cannot even approach the questions that once lingered. The toll of thoughts has finally dawned, keenly knit from the strands of past failures, yet understood. Weeping has been long rested. Spools of interest lay haywire, collected only upon want. Interests and memories awry. Unimaginative strain of surrealism – languid. A self-inflicted isolation of such kind stands at a distance prudently aware of its doings.

I feel hopeless. No more can I associate. The disparity between Thoughts, Actions and Silence. That is all.

Even writing seems tedious. But somewhere still burns the waning passion for and of Literature.

I sought. I seek.

  1. God have mercy on us. Before we render judgment on the least or the greatest, the wise or the foolish, the prophets or the doctors, the churched or the unchurched, may we first, before any words are spoken, be a people who weep. What might happen if the church wept along side those who are weeping? What would happen if rather than just say “Peace, peace” or, rather than simply writing a check or bringing cans of food for the hungry we actually mourned with, for, and alongside those to whom we offer our charity? What if rather than offer our words we offer our weeping selves?


  2. When acclaimed Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy was invited to teach a course on writing at an impoverished public school in Washington, D.C., he responded, I d rather teach peace. Thus began the work he has passionately pursued for the past 25 years teaching courses on nonviolence, conflict management, and peace studies. I d Rather Teach Peace chronicles one semester in six of these schools, as students find themselves challenged and inspired by an unconventional course and by a man who believes that if we don t teach our children peace someone else will teach them violence.
